BackOffice Associates Acquires Data Archiving IP Focused on SAP

BackOffice Associates is acquiring data archiving intellectual property focused on SAP software from Proceed Engineering Solutions, strengthening its commitment to SAP.

This acquisition complements BackOffice’s dspArchive application, giving the platform the ability to analyze, simulate, and execute complex and complete archiving activities for the SAP ERP application and SAP S/4HANA.

The dspArchive delivers system decommissioning activities, managing data partitioning as a part of divestitures, optimizing and right-sizing SAP S/4HANA deployments, continuously archiving data such as completed transactions, and refreshing hardware projects for proper scale.

“As a business, we’re highly focused on the overall topic of information governance and how we can use software automation as a way to simplify the management of data,” said Rex Ahlstrom, chief strategy officer at BackOffice Associates. “Archive will continue to be a very important component of that journey.”

Additional features of dspArchive include end-to-end data archival management of activities, resources and processes; metrics -driven dashboards for streamlined user experience; orchestration from design through execution, including full systems analysis, and planning; advanced project management with full metrics-driven visibility and documentation; valuable reuse of migration designs and assets; and integration with key archival repositories, such as OpenText.

IT teams, business users, and analysts will benefit the most from this acquisition, according to Ahlstrom.
